Shapeshifter was an ally of Saker and the team leader of the Destroyers. After that team was incarcerated and pretty much disbanded, she went her own way. She later manipulated Reverend Skagg into killing 1200 people, knowing that a few of them would rise again as para-normals (just like the Elementals received their powers through death). The six 'survivors' were formed into a religious task force by the Reverend and dubbed "The Rapture".
Shapeshifter's origin (as told by her) is older than humanity. She is a being that evolved throughout the ages, always changing form to match the strongest of the species. Eventually becoming a human once they arose, at that point she blended into society and met Saker, another being who had lived throughout the ages.
Shapeshifter is a character created for the pages of the dark, mature content, independent comic series from the 1980's known as the Elementals. The comic was produced by Comico Comics in 1984 and created by both writer and illustrator Bill Willingham
